    Creative Notes:
    Being a slave is hard. It takes a toll on any man. The day to day life is grueling, and filled with unforseen dangers. This is why Josey and Ruby want to run away. But, there is another lurking, something ancient, and it has come to offer a gift. A life free of bondage, and the power to slay thine enemies. But, there is always a price for freedom, and sometimes... it is paid in blood.

    Creative Notes:
    Originally titled "Immortal Chains", "A place in the Dark" is like an origin story to a franchise. We've only had a few cracks at "black" vampires, like "Blacula" and "Vampire in Brooklyn", so I thought it was about time to take another crack at it. I wanted to have some social commentary about The "Black Consciousness " in America and still be scary. I had fun with this script!
